What is Prostate Cancer?
The prostate is a small gland in the pelvis of men, it is located next to the bladder. It produces the seminal fluid that nourishes and transports sperms. Prostate cancer develops in the prostate gland, it is the second-leading cause of cancer deaths for men. Normally prostate cancer grows slowly and is initially limited to the prostate gland, over here it may not cause any severe harm, other types of prostate cancer are aggressive and can spread quickly. About 1 in 9 men are been diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime. Prostate cancer which is detected early has a better chance of successful treatment. Prostate diseases are treated by Urologists.

Causes of Prostate Cancer:
The causes of prostate cancer are still not clear. No one knows why and how prostate cancer is caused. Still, doctors research says, prostate cancer begins when cells in your prostate start becoming abnormal.
Variations in the abnormal cells’ DNA causes the cells to multiply and divide more quickly as compared to normal cells.
If you observe any of the above symptoms in you or in your nearby circle, visit a Urologist and get the treatment started.
